Tour a Sunny, Relaxed Family Home in Charleston

Keeping the walls neutral throughout this custom built home on the Intracoastal Waterway in Charleston, SC, interior designer Angie Hranowsky let the furniture, art and textures tell the story. She maximized the home's beautiful natural light and stunning views with a warm and inviting color palette that pushed the client out of her comfort zone of whites and grays. Using an assorted mix of styles and periods, Hranoswsky made sure the fabrics and furniture were both stylish and functional for this family with three children.


The home's large open living room has doors that lead outdoors to the porch and views of the pool and Intracoastal Waterway. The starting point for the room's design was the Buddha painting by artist Molly B. Right, which is made entirely of bottle caps. The arm chairs flanking the fireplace are vintage Paul McCobb and are covered in an Allegra Hicks fabric. The ebony and bronze console is vintage Pierre Cardin. The large abstract painting over the console is by Sally King Benedict and was a commissioned piece.

The living room flows into the keeping room and kitchen. The keeping room is where the family watches TV and gathers while hanging out around the kitchen. The living room sofa is B&B Italia, the coffee table is vintage McGuire and the kitchen cabinets are SieMatic.

The keeping room is decidedly casual and durable. The rug is by Merida, the rattan chairs are from Ralph Lauren and are covered in a Peter Dunham fabric. The sofa is by Lee Industries.

The upstairs hall is spacious and filled with light. The client loves art, so Hranowsky kept the walls white and hung salon styles walls of artwork, chosen from a constantly growing collection. A glimpse of the daughter's bedroom is seen from the hallway.

The daughter's bedroom is fun and relaxed. Hranowsky hung incredible vintage paintings over her bed and kept the beds, bedside table and vintage lamp fairly low to make it a good hangout space.The bedding is custom, and the rug is from Anthropologie.

The master bedroom is a peaceful and luxurious space with a neutral grasscloth on the walls and sheer ivory drapes made from a Donghia fabric. The chandelier is vintage, and the painting over the bed is a commission by Kate Long Stevenson.

The upstairs den and work space is a collected mix of comfortable seating with a vintage sofa and ottomans. Featured are Lee Industries chairs with custom fabric and a Kelly Wearstler trim, a Hechizoo rug from the Cristian Grajales gallery and a vintage Pierre Cardin lamp.

The back of the house has a pool with a pair of lounge beds, perfect for relaxing in the sun and porches along the back.
